This section of the COSSAP Online Learning Center highlights the work of exemplary peer practitioners and programs and details best practice approaches to combatting the opioid, stimulant, and substance use epidemic. These presentations serve as virtual opportunities to foster a sense of collegial collaboration. Interviews with leaders in the field, subject matter experts, grant managers, clients, and key stakeholders are designed to promote knowledge sharing around implementing peer recovery support services (PRSS); encourage participants to adopt and customize best practice program implementation and enhancement; and serve as catalysts for additional complementary training materials and resources (as applicable).
As peer practitioners move into a variety of roles in the criminal justice system, programs need to carefully plan and prepare to integrate peer recovery support services (PRSS) into their portfolio of services. This course offers ways to think about adopting and integrating PRSS into criminal justice settings, by identifying essential elements of comprehensive programs, essential integration processes, key program design factors, and drivers of success. While the core elements remain the same, PRSS programs will vary from intercept to intercept and site to site; this course will help you to develop the best program for your context and setting.View the Site Visit Videos
